    Default Hello From Green Birder in California

    Hi. I just joined. I am currently doing a big year, trying to break 300 species without using any gas - a BIGBY (big green big year). I am up to 208 species since Jan 1 and have a running account with a bird list, photos, map of locations, etc. at I'd love to get your feedback. Thanks.

    Hi Jim and welcome to the forum. Congrats on the total so far. I'm still struggling to find Glaucous Gull in CA.

    Welcome to the Surfbirds forums, Jim. Just been looking at your blog and you have an impressive list there already and it's not even the end of March! I noticed somewhere that you mentioned having an iPod Touch - so have I. Are you familiar with a great new app called BirdsEye, which shows you recent bird sightings (rare and ordinary), from info submitted to eBird, in your area or anywhere in N America? Here's their website if you don't know about it:

    It only costs $20 and has some great photos and sounds of 847 N American birds. You can upload to your life list in the app, too. You do need access to the internet, so I can only use mine at home to get details of sightings. Obviously it works best with an iPhone!
